Quick Reference Neuroscience for Rehabilitation Professionals Book Excerpt:

"Quick Reference Neuroscience for Rehabilitation Professionals is a concise and quick reference for the practitioner and student who are learning or reviewing the most relevant neuroscience principles supporting rehabilitation therapy. The updated Third Edition continues to meet a need in the rehabilitation profession that has gone unfilled--the ability to break down neuroscience information into the essential principles that can be used to understand neurological conditions and the principles underlying rehabilitation evaluation and practice. Quick Reference Neuroscience for Rehabilitation Professionals, Third Edition provides a quick review of a specific neuroscience concept or critical neuroscience principles supporting a specific rehabilitation intervention. In this era of information overload, this text rapidly and thoroughly provides condensed information in a user-friendly, easy-to-use format for the practitioner to better convey that information to a patient. Dr. Sharon Gutman has divided the text into three primary sections: the first addresses neuroanatomy; the second addresses the function of neurological systems underlying physical, psychiatric, cognitive, and visual perceptual disorders; and the final section addresses clinical neuropathology related to aging, addiction, memory, and the neurological substrates of sex and gender. A specific section describes the common neurodiagnostic tests that therapists do not administer but must have knowledge of when results are discussed at treatment team meetings"--Provided by publisher.

How We Became Sensorimotor Book Excerpt:

An engrossing history of the century that transformed our knowledge of the body’s inner senses The years between 1833 and 1945 fundamentally transformed science’s understanding of the body’s inner senses, revolutionizing fields like philosophy, the social sciences, and cognitive science. In How We Became Sensorimotor, Mark Paterson provides a systematic account of this transformative period, while also demonstrating its substantial implications for current explorations into phenomenology, embodied consciousness, the extended mind, and theories of the sensorimotor, the body, and embodiment. Each chapter of How We Became Sensorimotor takes a particular sense and historicizes its formation by means of recent scientific studies, case studies, or coverage in the media. Ranging among a diverse array of sensations, including balance, fatigue, pain, the “muscle sense,” and what Maurice Merleau-Ponty termed “motricity,” Paterson’s analysis moves outward from the familiar confines of the laboratory to those of the industrial world and even to wild animals and their habitats. He uncovers important stories, such as how forgotten pain-measurement schemes transformed criminology, or how Penfield’s outmoded concepts of the sensory and motor homunculi of the brain still mar psychology textbooks. Complete with original archival research featuring illustrations and correspondence, How We Became Sensorimotor shows how the shifting and sometimes contested historical background to our understandings of the senses are being extended even today.
